This is a great sipping rum which I like to have on the rocks. Very smooth, not real thick or sweet. Has a slight afterburn on the tongue that pleasantly reminds you that it is rum.
Great rum all around..vanilla aroma from the first pour until the last ..definitely a favorite can’t wait to try the 18 and 23 year aged..highly recommended
From the moment you pick it up you know this is gonna be a great rum experience. The heavy bottle fits perfectly in your hand as you pour. Crystaline golden honey cascades into your glass. The first to last sip is a balanced, blissful. Drier than many contemporary rums, with lots of oak and earth. It was preferred in a taste test with friends against the 25 yr El Dorado... Total opposites of course, but for 1/8th the price, I plan to get more K&S next time I find it.
One of the best looking bottles on my shelf
Love the feeling as it as it travels tru your whole body
Second favorite run so far, the 23 year being my favorite. I would rate it 9.5 overall but with the price factored in I felt rounding up would be the best choice.
Price is weighed lightly in my rating. I paid $28 for a 750ml bottle, absolute steal for the price.
Beautifully done without being overly sweet. Made for sipping straight, an amazing bottle that was like 35.00 when I bought it... I also bought the 19 and the 24. I have yet to try the 23 the 19 was beautiful but I preferred the 12.
Served over a chunk of iceberg this is hands down the best rum I have sipped on. Beautiful full flavour and a unique decadent aroma.
I did rank this rum as 10 because I think it surpassed the El Dorado 21 which I ranked as a 9. A 9.5 would have been my choice but not sure how to enter it as such on Rum Ratings. Thus was the first top shelf (at least based on price) I ever purchased. It was money well spent and still makes for the best sipping rum I have tried to date. Would love to try one I'd rate better.
I am always in search of the perfect Rum to go with a cigar. The Kirk & Sweeney is my go to and the best I have tried. The price point makes it a consistent option! I like to pour it over a large ice cube and sip!
